The global polymer emulsion market size is projected to reach USD 42,920.0 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.6% between 2018 and 2023.

Monomers dissolved in water are known as polymer emulsions. They are formed by a chain reaction known as emulsion polymerization. They are also known as water-borne polymers due to their water content. Polymer emulsions are increasingly used as substitutes for solvent-based polymers. Polymer emulsions have a high molecular weight and are considered environmentally-friendly as they have low VOCs.

In 2017, APAC accounted for the largest share of 46.7%, in terms of value, of the polymer emulsion market. The large market size of the region is attributed to the high demand from building & construction, automotive & transportation, and industrial sectors in China, Japan, and India, among others. Stringent governmental regulations such as the REACH Europe and Clean Air Act are also driving the polymer emulsion market. Another factor leading to the growth of the polymer emulsion market is the awareness regarding the concept of green buildings.

The polymer emulsion market is segmented on the basis of type as acrylics, vinyl acetate polymers, SB latex, and others. The acrylics segment led the overall polymer emulsion market, accounting for a share of 46.0% of the overall market, in terms of value, in 2017. The demand for the acrylics polymer emulsion is driven by the large usage in applications such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants in construction, industrial, and automotive & transportation industries.

The polymer emulsion market is segmented on the basis of application as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, paper & paperboard, and others. The growth in the paints & coatings sector plays a key role in driving the demand for polymer emulsion. The increased consumption of polymer emulsion in paints & coatings application is due to its low VOC emission and enhanced properties comparable to solvent-based counterparts.
